House cleaning bookeeping

3 Replies

Hello all,

Is it necessary to obtain receipts for house cleaning of rentals ($60-$100), or is it sufficient to just make note of the dates it occurred? In my experience most of the cleaning folks/services do not give receipts and take cash.

I'd ask for receipt or invoice for recordkeeping purposes.

 What if I haven't? The cleaning ladies were simply working privately, not under a company name. Isn't there a rule that says receipts are not required by the IRS under a certain $$?
